woman praying at Urbana15This Christmas season, the American Bible Society is reaching out to a certain portion of the military that is often forgotten.

ABS has helped launch a new devotional book for military wives called Journey of a Military Wife: God's Truth for Every Step. Brenda Pace, a military wife for 28 years, says she wrote the book because military wives face unique challenges.

"She often feels misunderstood by her civilian counterpart, maybe even that would include her extended family," Pace relays. "She enters a structured culture with its own language, protocols, and it's a group that stands in dire need of spiritual support, because they are experiencing some uncertain times."

The devotions focus on the numerous travel stories in the Bible and cover a range of topics, such as faith, hope, love, and contentment.

"We are described in Scripture as sojourners and journeying, that this world is not our home. So I think that that is something a military wife can appreciate and understand," the author submits.

The American Bible Society is making the devotional available for free to women whose husbands serve in all branches of the military. So far, the response has reportedly been overwhelming, as the ministry has distributed more than 30,000 copies to date.
